Host Information

Host review score

We originally had the house at Otter Street built in 2008, for us and our 3 children. The last of the children left home, for school, so in 2015 we repurposed the ground floor of the house to be a self contained 2 bedroom bed and breakfast suite. Each of the light and airy bedrooms has a queen size bed, a closet and an ensuite bathroom with shower. Located at the foot of Tunnel Mountain in Banff, 5 minutes walk from downtown, the Bow river and the Banff Center. The Banff Bear B&B Suite is the ideal private retreat after a full day of sightseeing, hiking, or skiing, or it can be your quiet hideaway where you can relax, and have some down time. The suite has it`s own private entrance so that you are provided with complete privacy. The suite is yours to use throughout the day. The Banff Bear B&B suite has a cozy sitting area which offers cable TV, YouTube and Netflix (on a 40 inch LCD screen) and high speed wireless Internet. There is a dining area and a kitchenette with bar fridge / freezer, microwave, toaster and the usual drink making facilities with complimentary tea & coffee (there is no stove). There is dedicated private parking and a Level 2, J1772 ev charger
